So you’ve finished a draft of your novel and you’re ready to submit to agents and editors. You’ve checked it, you’ve read it. A few friends said it’s good to go.

Not so fast.

Susan Smith has just the class for you—a special extended class at Colorado GOLD, one of the Friday morning “intensives” and it’s called “Hands on Honing.” (Colorado GOLD is Sept. 6 - 8.)

As Susan puts it, we all need to learn to be able to see our work from outside ourselves.

Susan Smith is also this year’s Honored Guiding Member at the Colorado Gold conference—so it’s a double opportunity learn from an expert in the editing field and someone who has been around the organization for many years. Susan not only wrote the book, Conan The Grammarian, she is an experienced judge of published and unpublished fiction.

Susan Mackay Smith has been a member of RMFW for many years, serving as contest chair, anthology editor, and president. She is traditionally published in fantasy under the pen name, Mackay Wood, occasionally works as a free-lance book doctor, a longtime judge of the Colorado Gold contest and a judge of the Colorado Book Awards as well.

Writers who head to the class should be prepared to dig into the “nitty gritty” details, as she puts it, of how to polish and how to edit and how to make sure you’re story is really ready to go.

Can we learn to self-edit? Susan Smith says yes.
